Mitra Saboury

“I want to touch everything. To fill every hole in the asphalt, every crack in the granite. To click the rust off the iron fence.”

Mitra Saboury’s work investigates the impact of the built environment on the human body. Using performance, video and installation, Saboury attempts to reclaim the city by interacting with its cracks, crevices, photoles and other negative spaces. She confronts and overcomes the physical restriction and confinement of architectural perimeters by employing her body in unexpected ways. There is a peculiar intimacy to Saboury’s repetitive actions which suggests a fetishisation of the moribund, imperfect and commonplace.


Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Young Gods in January 2014.
